    Hi, i just got a Macbook and i'm used to use Windows.
    Now i want to choose a IM client and i don't know which one to choose.
    Here is my wish list:

    I want to log in with an account (from windows live).
    All my old contacts must be in my list.
    Also i want to be able to save my conversations automatically.
    I want to be able to have the status: Appear offline.
    Since i transfer files a lot, i want to send pictures and movies in a conversation.

    And last but not least, i want to use my ISight!

    Hope you can help!

    Yeah everyone uses Adium pretty much for its customisation, Im using a pre beta of mac messenger which has vieo and audio, but it's quite rusty!

    Thanks for the tip!

    I've also heard a lot of good news about Amsn and Yahoo messenger.. what are the differences between those three?

    And from what i've seen on the internet, adium doesn't support the Isight camera.

    Another ++ for Adium though I believe you're right - it doesn't support webcams; however, this is a feature currently being worked on, IIRC.
